Tetra Tech’s Michelle Gillie exemplifies our commitment to safe performance of all projects and employee dedication to safety in our daily work.

Ms. Gillie was named a 2014 Fellow of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) and recognized at the organization’s conference in San Antonio, Texas, on June 4, 2014. She is the health and safety director of our Tetra Tech GEO unit and a member of the Tetra Tech Safety Council since 2001.

According to AIHA, only five percent of the organization’s membership can qualify for the Fellow Award, which is given to those individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of industrial hygiene. AIHA is one of the largest international associations of occupational and environmental health and safety professionals, with 10,000 members and a comprehensive education program.

Ms. Gillie has more than 30 years of experience in the field of occupational and environmental health and safety and has been board certified in the comprehensive practice of industrial hygiene since 1986. She is a Certified Industrial Hygienist and Certified Professional Environmental Auditor.

She provides health and safety support to Tetra Tech environmental, engineering and construction projects and also directly manages her own industrial hygiene projects. For more than six years, she served as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Remedial Action Contract Region 3 Health and Safety Officer for Superfund Site preliminary assessments, site investigations, and remedial actions. She is the past Chair of the AIHA’s Environmental Issues Committee, has co-authored a paper on vapor intrusion and an AIHA white paper on PCBs in construction, and currently serves as the project chair for a white paper on occupational and environmental health impacts from hydraulic fracturing.

We congratulate Ms. Gillie and thank her for helping uphold Tetra Tech’s commitment to safety on all of our projects.
